CLEVELAND – Cuyahoga County Executive Armond Budish issued the following statement:

“When rage, racism and intolerance rear their heads, we as a civilized, multi-cultural community must stand up and say ‘We are not this. We will not tolerate these acts of terrorism.’

My thoughts and prayers are with Heather Heyer’s family and with all the wounded who were simply and peacefully standing up against hatred spewed by white supremacist and Nazis.”
